The IFA Business Opportunity

 The philosophy is simple – word of mouth is the strongest form of marketing. This business is based on a network marketing system: rewarding you for simply referring others to the IFA Business Opportunity by inviting them to an IFA Presentation. An accredited IFA Presenter explains the business opportunity and introduces you to Clientèle Life products.

To participate in the IFA Business Opportunity, all IFAs are required to pay a monthly IFA Business Fee of R55 per month (effective as of 1 July 2013).  This business fee gives you full access to various business support services and events.  FOR LESS THAN R2 A DAY you are given the necessary tools and support to build a successful business.  For your convenience, the IFA Business Fee will be added to your monthly premium and billed from the banking account nominated on your application form.

The support, services and business tools include:

  • Professional IFA Presenters located at over 200 venues around the country to present the IFA Business Opportunity on your behalf.
  • An extensive range of marketing materials to build your IFA business and brand.
  • A dedicated National Contact Centre which is manned by experienced and dedicated staff, ready to answer all your questions and assist you.
  • Comprehensive training programmes offered nationally by the IFA Academy, free of charge.
  • Business and network information through various channels including monthly earner letters, various SMS campaigns and the Izindaba newsletter.
  • A comprehensive recognition programme, including awards events to ensure that both you and your team are rewarded for your hard work.
  • Various marketing campaigns across a variety of media such as newspapers, magazines, television and radio, designed to create ‘top-of-mind’ awareness of the IFA Business Opportunity, and this helps you market the IFA Business Opportunity better.
  • Monthly bonuses designed to boost your earnings.
  • Business statements to help you manage your business.
  • An IFA Database Sales Centre which helps you to grow your business by promoting additional products to IFAs.
